              When the earth thrashes under us like a fish, the ordinary words we use to describe the devastation afterwards never seem enough.

              Leaving the country you grew up in is both heart-wrenching and liberating. Ish writes of her move from New Zealand to Scotland, to find that tea leaves in a pot still make a cup of tea, but one that's somehow different. Then she winds back to other more painful leave-takings that... a pot of tea has no answer for. And Ish finds as she writes that what she misses most in her new life is the salty and reassuring place where fish grow. An accomplished first collection from a young poet that speaks directly and with great beauty of the stuff of the heart.

But always there is the possibility of flight, and one da...y she takes off to London. In this wintry? and sometimes brutal place, the poet locates what it is she is missing. And then, like so many before her, decides to return home. Possibility of flight is a thoughtful and intimate first collection that ends unexpectedly with fireworks.

But the cost has been high. Martha cannot speak of the past nor the people she left behind. Lewisville is a novel based on true events. It is a story of one woman's ambition, of escape and reinvention, and the bittersweet consequences of achieving one's dreams"--Back cover.

              Jane Carswell began her working life at Pegasus Press shortly after its audacious publication of Janet Frame's novel Owls Do Cry, and years later she went on to publish a book herself, an award-winning memoir about teaching in China called Under the Huang Jiao Tree. The road betw...een one book and the other was a rocky one paved with self-doubt and publishers' rejections, the experience provoking Jane to write again, this time about the troubled transformation between the private interior world of reading and the noisy exterior world of publication, between the books we read and treasure and the ones we write. She tried to manage this struggle by dividing her time between a busy life as a music teacher in Christchurch while looking after a succession of Chinese guests, and a quiet withdrawal to a world of meditation and monasteries. But publication continued to elude her, so Jane journeyed to the place where Janet Frame grew up to find the courage she needed to revise her manuscript one last time. Lyrical and literary, Talk of Treasure is a compelling memoir about how to be a writer, and more simply, just how to be.
